Octoprint suggestion

Recommended Posts

Just a thought...

I see in the Manage Printers , Connect Octoprint, there is a Note that advises to change gcode flavor.

After assisting someone is getting theirs to work, could a small edit be made to this note? Perhaps stating it a bit more precisely.... "Note: Printing Ulticode using Octoprint does not work. Please switch you gcode flavor under "Machine Settings" and set to Marlin" ?

(You say FLAVOUR in the note and FLAVOR in the Machine Settings)

Also, could some intelligence be added to the "Print with Octoprint" button to check the gcode has been changed?

Thanks!

I have updated the text for now, similar to your suggestion.

could some intelligence be added to the "Print with Octoprint" button to check the gcode has been changed?

I have been mulling over that in the past, but never came up with an optimal solution. What I would like to do is to write an OctoPrint plugin to "un-UltiGcode" the gcode on the fly when printing. This would make OctoPrint UltiGcode compatible, so refusing to print UltiGcode would not be a good solution (anymore).

What I am currently thinking is, instead of showing the message "Note: printing Ultigcode using..." is having a checkbox that is set by default to actually switch the gcode flavor for you.

Yes, any automation that makes it a bit easier would be great.

I know I have forgotten to make the change (multiple laptops...I forget)...and then see the printer immediately starting to print when the nozzle isn't even heated up....first clue it isn't set to Marlin! :)
